Sampled and Synthesized Drums

The original Rob Papen Punch virtual drum machine made its mark on the map through a combination of professionally designed drum synthesis/samples and the built-in pattern sequencer. Now, by adding even more drum synthesis models, and introducing a fresh, re-designed main screen which allows you to quickly form unique new drum kits, Rob Papen Punch 2 continues its legacy to be a cutting edge drum machine... but with lots of extra added punch!

It doesn't stop there though; the interface and the synthesis sound options have been expanded greatly. Rob Papen Punch 2 now allows you to import your own samples and REX files so you can create your own loops using whatever samples you'd like. You can map out REX files or sample slices to individual pads and combine these creatively with the sounds & pattern sequencer found inside Punch 2 for ultimate usability. Further editing of REX files or Sliced pads is also possible by using one of the many additional features such as filters, envelopes or routing into one of the 4 FX modules. And yes, you can even use granular synthesis on the REX and Slice pads!

Feature-wise there is almost too much to mention here! For instance, there is a full new ‘Master’ section with EQ, Compressor, Limiter, Stereo/mono split filter, and layout mixer. Last but not least, Punch 2 also comes with a vast amount of included sounds, ready to groove into your music and productions!

 Amazona Sehr gut 3 Sterne

Mit 149 Euro liegt das Paket eher im oberen Preissegment, jedoch in der Nähe von Battery und Co, ist dafür aber auch deutlich feingliedriger und vielfältiger einzustellen als andere meist deutlich simpler gestrickte Elektro-Drum-Angebote, welche nicht selten auch einen Sequencer mit bekommen haben. Der Schwerpunkt liegt definitiv in den Sounds selbst, nicht in dem mitgelieferten Sequencer. Es wäre jedoch sicher ganz nett gewesen, wenn man ein fertiges Pattern oder Sounds als Audiofile ausgeben oder dem Hostsequencer weiter reichen könnte. Zur Zeit müsste man die Klänge oder einen Loop bouncen (Logic Sprache) bzw. rendern (Ableton-Begriff).

Wem µTonic und ähnliche zu eingeschränkt ist oder sich sehr unterschiedlichen Genres annimmt oder einfach gerne herumexperimentiert und immer auf der Suche nach individuellen Drumsounds ist, die auch als solche erkennbar sind, wird inklusive gut dazu harmonierender Effekte fündig. Die echte Stärke liegt deshalb auch wirklich in einer hohen Wandelbarkeit und Gestaltungsmöglichkeit, ohne gleich bei wenigen Drehmomenten recht bald alle Klischees durchlaufen zu haben. Sowohl als Drumexpander für Hardware als auch klassisch mit einer DAW lassen sich gute Ergebnisse herstellen oder als Samples irgendwo einbauen. Die Ergebnisse möchten nicht in erster Linie nach TR X0X klingen, können aber daran erinnern, wenn man das wünscht.
